    And we can use them with a wide range of shoes rather than the few models that shell is typically limited to.

    Nothing official--that's just what I've heard from a few sales associates.

    Hope at least the navy blue is true! I'm not sure what i'd get in Ruby Red or Green. I'm sure someone here will have some suggestions though!

    The blue is the one color they've repeatedly told me they were almost positive would be available. They weren't quite sure about the green, and I never heard about the red.

    First trip out for The Harrison. Representing my company at the Congressional Medal of Honor Society convention at U.S. Bank Stadium. So in awe, I didn't notice my laces were askew. Not in awe of the place, but the people represented on the stage.....

    I'm thinking Ruby Red Cornwallis or St. Johns/Mora 2.0 or maybe even the Washington Square.

    I didn't realize that the Navy calf Strand, Cornwallis and Park Ave were available.

    When talking about "ruby red" shell, are we talking about Horween #2 color?

    And if anyone can tell me how I can participate and buy during the shell event when I'm living way out near D.C.....

    Is it that hard to call a store and ask?

    No it's not. I don't think my local AE store has ever advertised such an event, but if this is available at any store, I'll be good.

    Its nothing. I wouldn't worry about it. A for edge dressing, chili is going to be darker than they are now. If your OK with that, go for it, if not, neutral is the way to go. Personally, I love chili, but on Walnut uppers, I like to keep the edge lighter. Chili fas a touch of red, and I find brown too opaque. Wish the made a more transparent brown.

    I agree that the little notch where the ends of the welt meet is normal and not a problem. I personally wouldn't touch it. But, if it's bothering you, you might be able to use something like this (http://www.minwax.com/wood-products/preparation/minwax-stainable-wood-filler) to fill the little gouge, and then "stain" it with some chili or neutral edge dressing.

    I would start with 9D on the 201. Maybe its just me, but to my feet it seems a tiny bit longer than the 65, maybe a 8.5E would be good too??? I also feel the 97 is a touch shorter than the 201/65, I stuck with my 65 length but dropped from an E to a D.

    For reference I brannock 8.5 D/E, and take an 8E in the 65 dress balmorals (PA, Strand, etc). I can wear 8D in the 201, but the instep is not as good, E is too wide. 8D in my Brooks MacNiels. Also, I got the Sauk Dr. (201) in 8D, it feels too long, love them but I may have to get rid of them.

    There goes the retirement account. They're going to have to fashion a casket out of my shoes, because I'm going to die penniless.

    Yes, would you happen to know if any shades of brown will be offered? Even standard dark brown?

    You might want to try thicker socks with the Sauks before you give up on them. I've found that thick hiking socks can basically reduce the size of a pair of boots by almost 1/2 of a brannock size. I like these: http://www.wigwam.com/products/p-hiking-outdoor-pro-socks.aspx?productid=2386.

    I'm guessing they mean Color 2??? Cornwallis? The Burgundy pair someone posted a few weeks back looked pretty good.

    Not sure if you grabbed them based on my post about them on ebay for $119 but I have had my pair for a little over a week and they have quickly moved into a favorite spot, today is the 3rd time I am wearing them.

    Yes, I typically wear boot socks with boots. Thorlo's are my go to. Its not the width or the volume, its the length in front of the toes, even with boots socks. I also have some ridiculously thick Colombia wool socks, but still not feeling it.
